Around a few months ago I was prescribed to .5mg Xanax. At first, it was helping me a lot with my panic/Anxiety issues. But, my body has become dependent on it. Meaning, if I don't take one within 24 hours, I get sick. I take my Xanax twice a day, as prescribed. But, i've noticed a huge lack of motivation with me. Ever since I turned 17 a few months back, i've had severe anxiety problems and lack of motivation/ some depression. I used to be able to wake up and want to do 1,000 things and have energy, now I sleep all day and never want to get up. A few months back around February, I went through a major depression stage. I would have panic attacks 24/7 and my chest would hurt randomly for around 5-10 minutes and I would start to tear up repeatedly. Thankfully, I shook that off with time but I still have no motivation and I don't know why. Could it be the Xanax? Too high of dosage, taking it too much, or what? I've also been a lot more angry lately. With no motivation at 17, it's rough. But, I don't have a clue why! Could someone here help/explain to me what could be the issue? I have a very poor diet, also intake a lot of caffeine daily, but do take my vitamins twice a day. Also, every morning I wake up cloudy until I take my Xanax, could this be addiction?
